The Palmer report stated that the blokkade of Gaza is legal. According to the Hurriyet Daily News, Turkey is looking for a military confrontation with Israel to break the blokkade. Of course all anti-Israel countries and posters here will rejoice at the possible killing of Israelis.. However, if Turkey takes military action it will also have other consequences. Turkey will have to leave NATO. The other members will not want to go to war to break a legal blokkade and for an apology. It also means the end of Turkey's role as an " honest broker" between the west and the Muslim world. As such, Turkey loses its strategic importance for the west. Military actions will also endorse the negative stereotypes of Turks in Europe ("barbaric", "honour killings"). There will be at least one winner: Wilders and his supporters.
